Happening Harry Potter Party Details:

This is what Abby shared about the party- “Our son is a huge Harry Potter fan, so, for his 9th birthday party we wanted to bring the world of Harry Potter come to life! Guests were welcomed via platform 9 3/4 (complete with steam (a fog machine!) We built stores so the kids could visit Honeydukes and “buy” all the fun candy from the books.

First off, the kids visited Ollivanders for a wand. The kids were then sorted into their house, and they stopped by  Madame Maulkins for house robes. For games we did a dragon egg relay, and we did a three-part game involving math and word scrambles. As they solved each part of the puzzle, they opened one of the three locks at Gringott’s bank to access their gold. The kids loved our 7-foot long Nagini snake cake! We had a potions cabinet and owl post as part of our decorations. What fun! The kids were in heaven!

I made all the wands using 15″ wooden chopsticks, hot glue and acrylic paints. I made all of the wand and candy boxes along with all of the hand-painted signs. We had a lot of fun with this theme! Happy birthday!”

    Hello! I am currently planning a Harry Potter Summer Camp and am wondering how you made the stores look like actual stores? Also, did you purchase the wand boxes online or make them somehow?
    I really appreciate the help.
    Thank you!

      Thanks for reaching out!! This isn’t a Kara’s Party Ideas party, so your best bet is to reach out directly to the party stylist. Her name and link are in the first paragraph of the party post. You can also check the vendor list in the post. XOXO!

    Kelly,
    We’re you able to get a response? I was wondering the EXACT two things. How she made the stores and where she got the boxes from or how she made them. If you could share her response I would be so very grateful! Thanks!
